hey ladies,

i had my annual and preconception visit all in one today. i am so glad it is over and so many of my questions/concerns were answered as well as some i hadn't counted on.
first i met with my new dr. in his office and we discussed thouroughly my history. i was so appreciative of his time. we talked about the possibility of a pregnancy. he answered all my questions about my care should i get pregnant. i also asked him to do a test as i am day 25 and should start any second. it came back negative. he looked at my cycle and feels sure i am not ovulating. interesting. i was wondering but we will do bloodwork on cd 21 after i start this next cycle. this could also be tied into the breast discharge i had a couple of weeks ago. i enjoyed him so much. he took his time and was so optimistic. if i find not to be ovulating they will call in clomid to start. i am excited by this prospect bc i feel it will happen quickly after that. he told me the stats but i can't remember them. can anyone tell me them? as far as the percentage of women it helps and how long it takes.

also, during my pelvic exam he found a fibroid which he had ultrasound done to check it. thankfully it is not affecting my ovaries and will probably cause no problems at all. i was not expecting this news at all and got scared of course at the possibilities but it turned out to be good news i suppose.

i am so thankful that i made an appt. to have my breast checked...they are fine by the way. i got a lot out of this appt that i didn't expect. i am hopeful for the future but impatient just the same. you girls know what i mean!!

the best news.......i found a dr. i feel is very qualified to handle my case and his optimism is catching! oh, the area i am in.....memphis, seems to be a hot bed for preeclampsia so he has had a lot of experience. thank goodness. and he will also monitor my bp as often as i feel necessary to keep my peace of mind. wow. just what i wanted

So glad you appointment went well!! I'm so happy that you have a doctor that you feel absolutely comfortable with and that seems to be proactive!

What a wonderful appt! I have heard that most women get pg within the first month using clomid. I wish you tons of babydust!!! It is important to have a doc you can trust especially when you are facing what you need to face with PE. I look forward to seeing your f/u posts about the clomid and your +++ :o)

Hi AliMarie,
I was just about to respond to you in the "Waiting to Test" Club thread when I saw your post here.
Just wanted to say that I am so glad you had a good appointment and with a doctor that sounds great. That means everything in the world right now, doesn't it?
Anyway, I wish you loads of luck and baby dust.
